NFC and Bluetooth inside KNOX Workspace
Near field communication (NFC) and Bluetooth are now available inside the software Workspace, allowing users to stay connected to their peripherals while inside their container.
Container login using Active Directory
IT Admins can now choose an Active Directory password as the unlock method for KNOX containers. This allows them to use a one password-management policy to manage desktop and mobile services.
KNOX Mobile Enrollment
Mobile Enrollment enables IT admins and MDM solutions to stage and enroll a large number of devices automatically by configuring device information in the cloud.
KNOX Quick Access leverages Samsung wearables such as the GALAXY Gear to allow extended access to an unlocked software container. Once the wearable is out of range, the software container locks it automatically.
